National Museum of Australia

Opened in March 2001, the National Museum is the first in the country devoted to the stories of Australia and Australians, exploring the key issues, events and people that have shaped and influenced our Nation.

Bringing together the richly diverse stories of Australia's land, Nation and people, the National Museum has developed an international reputation for innovative exhibitions.

It profiles 50,000 years of indigenous heritage, settlement since 1788 and key events including Federation and the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

The collection has everything from a carcass of the extinct Tasmanian Tiger to Australia's largest collection of bark paintings, Phar Lap's heart and the No.1 Holden Prototype car.
